On Giving Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013, Henry Vilas Zoo needs your support to help us grow our lion pride!

Together, We Did it!

Thank You for Supporting your Henry Vilas Zoo on Giving Tuesday to help us bring home a new lion - planned to arrive this winter!

With all of your generous donations, the Friends of the Henry Vilas Zoo is proud to announce that we raised $10,530 on Giving Tuesday, December 3, 2013. These funds will allow us to bring a young male lion from Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington to join lioness Shakura at your Henry Vilas Zoo this winter! This extraordinary feat could not have been accomplished without your support.


Above & Beyond

Your Support Will Help Us Grow Your Zoo Family in 2014!

Our goal for Giving Tuesday was to raise $5,000 to help bring our new male lion home to your Henry Vilas Zoo. Through an outpouring of generosity and support, we not only met but even exceeded our goal for Giving Tuesday. These additional funds above and beyond our original goal will be dedicated to our Animal Welfare fund, and can help Henry Vilas Zoo to bring in even more new animals as well as exciting new species in 2014.

Your donations and pledges help us continue to build a world class zoo that you can be proud of, and support our commitment to providing excellence in care to all of our animals at your Henry Vilas Zoo.
